What have you learned this month?
- The recollection was really good for me. Here's the giveaway.
- I've had a couple of down days this month (especially towards the end of the month), probably hormones, probably stress but I felt like giving up and thanks to this article, I came across this message...
I’m living right from the middle of all the questions. I don’t know that I’ll ever not be. What I do know is that His answers are greater and more abundant than the questions and His heart for me is a well of love deeper than I know."
- We don't have much of a choice but just hang in there and everything will fall into place. As long as you are hanging on to God, you are going to be ok, eventually. After all, if you are not ok, it's not yet over.
My birthday month was definitely fun! Sooooo, hello now October!
